Subject: NAME, REL, REV on A but not AREA


Is there some good reason to have the NAME, REL, and REV attributes
on the A element but not on the AREA element?  (Wilbur or Cougar draft.)
I see that Cougar puts TITLE in both places, which makes sense to me.
In some sense an AREA is just a fancy way of presenting a link, so
it makes sense that all the link-related attributes should be present in
both places.
